Interesting that someone wants to blame Perry for DPS gunboat tactics. It was Clinton and Janet Reno who used an armored tank to batter down the walls at a religious compound in Waco that resulted in the deaths of innocent children. Maybe it's time for politicians and police alike to be more civilian and less para-military.
